We choose to do a 20 minute flight. I have a disability and the pilot was incredibly understanding and helped me climb up into the sea plane. The flight itself was fantastic, and the commentary informative. I have visited Taupo quite a few times (since 1982) but I have never seen it like this before. Highly recommended.

It was an amazing experience. The flight take off and landing was very smooth and the view of Taupo and surrounding area from above was amazing. Highly recommended activity for couples or families.

Absolutely had the most amazing time during this flight. I was a solo passenger and was happy to pay extra for the spare seat and totally worth the extra money. It was January 1st 2021 and anniversary of my husband passing away three years ago, so I was wanting to do something special. This hit the mark in every way. The pilot Neil, was brilliant with the information as we flew over landmarks and history of the area. I am a keen photographer and he was really thoughtful re me trying to take photos in keeping the plane steady. So appreciative. I loved the view from the air, and having walked to the Taranaki Falls and having walked the Tongariro Crossing, it was beyond incredible to see these places from the air. The hours journey was one wow moment after another.
